goodbye summer, hello fall

October 2, 2009

I finally said goodbye to summer this week. Summer is my favorite season and I really hate to see it go. Mostly because I hate being cold and I think that everything looks better in the sunshine. And it’s very rare to see much sunshine once fall has started. We had a beautiful sunset the other night and I took some pictures of it.

I love the idea of sitting at home, grabbing a blanket, and reading a great book. Or baking a delicious dessert and drinking a yummy coffee with it to keep me warm. But all the other things that come with fall don’t really seem that exciting to me.

I really don’t like rain. Mostly because I’m short and I don’t own a single pair of pants that aren’t too long. I’ve tried hemming them myself and I always hate them because I’ve always grown up with pants that are too long so that’s just the way I like it. Having too long pants isn’t that bad for like 4 months of the year. The rest of the eight months I spend holding my pants up while I’m running through parking lots trying to get out of the pouring down rain. Then when I get home I can’t stand wearing my wet pants so I take them off and put on a new pair. Then I realize that I forgot something at the grocery store and have to go back outside. Now I have two pairs of wet pants and freezing feet. This is what fall feels like to me. Wet.

Well this year when fall started coming around I was actually started to feel excited. I was waking up to mornings like these:

Fall Morning

I love the sunshine, and I don’t mind the cold if it’s kind of sunny out and I have a cute coat on. But most mornings that start like that I end up looking out windows that look like this:

Rainy Windows

Wet. Wet. Wet. But I’ve decided to accept it and enjoy it. So this morning I woke up early and whipped up some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and made a couple latte’s. That was the first time I acknowledged Fall. (That and the fact that we had to pull out our little space heater earlier this week.)

a well balanced breakfast

Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!
